Pumas v Wallabies scores, time, odds, how to watch

That’s all from me on the blog, stay tuned for further reaction from Argentina, including Michael Cheika’s reaction to losing to Australia in his first hit-out against his home country as Pumas coach.

Here’s the link to Iain Payten’s match report again, including some comments from Wallabies coach Dave Rennie.

Despite the injury to Quade Cooper, that was a perfect start to Australia’s Rugby Championship campaign. They grew into the game and adapted to referee Mike Adamson, turning a 13-5 penalty count against them at half-time into a much more even 16-14 balance at full time.

There is another Test to go, in San Juan, next week. Argentina showed plenty of attacking class and will come back having tweaked their game. Then it’s home to Australia where the Wallabies face South Africa in Adelaide and Sydney, before a fast finish against the All Blacks, one in Melbourne and the final in Auckland.

South Africa will test Australia’s mettle, the world champions on fire in Nelspruit overnight in a 26-10 win over New Zealand. But with one Test left in Argentina to lock in today’s improvements and a good record against the Springboks, the Wallabies will come home determined to spring an upset.
